Pros: Obvious pros are obvious
-Performance, much better than i expected.
-No metal clips to hold the fans on, nice little rubber nubs
Overall my temps are about 7C lower than the stock (copper core) I7 cooler, not bad in my book.
Cons: -packaging is a down right inadequate. My unit had several severely bent fins on the top corners, i bent them back to normal, but i suspect that if i had to bend them again they would snap.
Other Thoughts: I will be the first to admit that i only purchased this because it was on sale. I noticed that it was compatible with the Metis, which is basically the same as the Raidmax Atomic, or the DIYPC version, so i went for it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-TU200B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Pros: At first i was in love, Now i can't even use the thing. At it's core this is one of the nicest cases I've ever come across. It looks good, it's portable, it can house a large number of drives and a long graphics card.
Cons: However, as nice as this case may be. There is one fatal design flaw, the plastic clips that hold the side panels on. After about eight months of ownership i installed another HDD, after opening my case seven out of the eight tabs snapped. After further inspection i noticed how brittle and cheaply made they are. The worst part is that i checked online and there are only a few sites which sell replacement tabs and some are charging up to five dollars per tab. There are eight tabs per side!
Other Thoughts: I can now no longer close my case, the remaining TAB is insufficient to hold the side panel on. I am torn between purchasing an entirely different case, or shelling out up to eighty dollars to fix the one i have.
Do not, under any circumstances purchase this case. Unless you plan on opening this case ONCE, and i truly mean once *i only ever opened mine once*. I love Lian-LI cases but this one let me down in the long run
Pros: These are pretty much the "holygrail" (Newegg blocks the correct spelling) of case fans. Obvious pros are obvious.
-Price, Although my fan was included these fans alone are an amazing deal.
-Airflow, These fans must be under-rated because mine seemed to move quite a bit more than expected.
-Noise, I had to put my ear within 6" of the exposed fan to hear it at full speed, no exaggeration. Inside my case its completely dampened.
Cons: Shipping, But patience is the key when shipping over seas.
Other Thoughts: This fan was included with a ID cooling vapor chamber cooler i purchased a while back. I was skeptical of the ID-cooling brand and was going to swap it out with a "better" 92mm fan right off the bat. However, i felt like quite a fool when i tested it out.
I would recommend this fan over any other in its size, why this brand hasn't picked up steam is beyond me. I'm tempted to purchase their 120mm fans for my next build.
